An intuitive and accessible approach to discrete mathematics using Latin squares In the past two decades, researchers have discovered a range of uses for Latin squares that go beyond standard mathematics. People working in the fields of science, engineering, statistics, and even computer science all stand to benefit from a working knowledge of Latin squares. Discrete Mathematics Using Latin Squares is the only upper-level college textbook/professional reference that fully engages the subject and its many important applications. Mixing theoretical basics, such as the construction of orthogonal Latin squares, with numerous practical examples, proofs, and exercises, this text/reference offers an extensive and well-rounded treatment of the topic. Its flexible design encourages readers to group chapters according to their interests, whether they be purely mathematical or mostly applied. Other features include: An entirely new approach to discrete mathematics, from basic properties and generalizations to unusual applications 16 self-contained chapters that can be grouped for custom use Coverage of various uses of Latin squares, from computer systems to tennis and golf tournament design An extensive range of exercises, from routine problems to proofs of theorems Extended coverage of basic algebra in an appendix filled with corresponding material for further investigation. Written by two leading authorities who have published extensively in the field, Discrete Mathematics Using Latin Squares is an easy-to-use academic and professional reference.

"The revival of translation as a means of learning and teaching a foreign language and as a skill in its own right is becoming a reality in undergraduate as in postgraduate degree programmes. The main reasons for this remarkable comeback lie in recent changes in Applied Linguistics such as the support for the use of the L1 in foreign language learning, the development of the ecological approach to the study of language and second language acquisition as well as an interest in glossodiversity and semiodiversity in our increasingly globalized world. This book examines the ebb and flow of the role of pedagogic translation starting with the Grammar Translation Method and concluding with the more recent ecological approaches to Foreign Language Education. Drawing on the convergence between the view of language and translation embraced by ecologically-oriented educationalists such as Claire Kramsch (2009) and the theoretical underpinnings of the holistic approach to translating culture proposed by Maria Tymoczko (2007), this volume puts forward a holistic pedagogy that harmonizes the teaching of language and translation in the same learning environment. The goal is to form multilingual subjects with deep translingual and transcultural competence. This entails the ability to critically reflect on the world and ourselves through the eyes of another language and culture. "--
The linear sampling method is the oldest and most developed of the qualitative methods in inverse scattering theory. It is based on solving a linear integral equation and then using the equation's solution as an indicator function for the determination of the support of the scattering object. This book describes the linear sampling method for a variety of electromagnetic scattering problems. It presents uniqueness theorems and the derivation of various inequalities on the material properties of the scattering object from a knowledge of the far field pattern of the scattered wave.

The Urban Experience provides a fresh approach to the study of metropolitan areas by combining economic principles, social insight, and political realities with an appreciation of public policy to understand how U.S. cities and suburbs function in the 21st century. The book is grounded in the real life experiences of students and their families on the premise that there is a fascination about one's own surroundings. It uses a great deal of historical and comparative data to explore the wide variation in how we experience urban and suburban communities. It addresses the changing role and function of U.S. metropolitan areas in an age of growing global competition and focuses on key contemporary problems facing cities and suburbs. The book introduces analyses from economics, sociology, and political science as useful tools to understand the evolution and current status of the nation's urban areas. The book will be a valuable text for urban scholars, public officials, and all those interested in understanding urban dynamics. A CD-ROM is packaged with the book containing census information from 1970 through 2005 for virtually every city and town in every metropolitan area in the United States. The data analysis engine on the CD permits the user to create tables and charts comparing municipalities across time with simple clicks of the mouse. Users can compare their own location or any other to others across the country, deepening their understanding of similarities and differences across urban areas.
